Q. How do I set the email address from which Customer Communications emails are sent?
This is specified by store, so if you have more than one store in your Cloud POS group, each store can use a unique email address to send Customer Communications.
In the main menu in Cloud POS backoffice, go to Setup then Stores, and click Edit next to the store in question. Scroll to the section titled Customer Services Email and type in the email address you wish to use, then scroll to the foot of the page and click Save.
The email address you have specified here will appear to recipients as the sender's email address, and will also be the address that receives any replies that the customer might send.

Q. Can I quickly tell a customer that their workshop service is complete and their bike is ready for collection?
Yes! When you click to Complete a workshop job, the Customer Communications panel opens automatically.
Remember that the QC (Quality Control) details need to be entered to complete a workshop job. This is usually the initials of a colleague (or your own).

Q. Is there a limit to the number of Communication Templates I can create?
Q. I'm a multi-site retailer. Are the Communication Templates shared with all my stores?
Signatures are derived from the Cashier/User details and they are specific to a particular store. Communication Templates are not tied to a specific store.
